Silky Smooth Cork Drag
Over the last couple decades, the Islander MR3’s cork drag has probably caught more salmon than any other system off the coast of British Columbia…And for good reason. The properties of our drag ensure that when even the biggest chinook goes for a run, you have enough stopping power to slow it down and enough smoothness to apply consistent fish fighting pressure.
Large Arbor For Quick Retrieve
The MR3’s spool features a large arbor which increases your retrieval rate so that when that torpedo makes a run at the boat you’ve got the pick up to stay on it. The design also eliminates the need for backing while still providing you with enough capacity for the longest of runs.
For all the lefties out there who are sick of fishing ‘backwards’ the MR3 is your reel. With a simple procedure, you can reel your reel your way.
Custom Laser Engraving
Perfect for retirement gifts, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events or just a personalized look, this add on ensures your reel will stand out. Leave a note during checkout or give us a call and we’ll provide you with more information.
The laser engraving process permanently etches the anodized finish without fully penetrating the coating to ensure the finish’s anti-corrosive properties are maintained. The process produces a white finish—we cannot engrave in colour.
Parabolic Fiberglass Blank
With the slow parabolic action of our 10’6” mooching rod you will feel every head shake on the way to the boat. Once there, in that chaotic moment when the fish is thrashing in the net and the rod is under its most stress, the rugged fiberglass maintains its strength when graphite would shatter.
In order to be selected for this mooching rod, every component of this rod had to live up to our rigorous testing standards. In many cases that meant we had to machine our own. We spared no detail from the titanium carbide guides, to the cork grip with durable non-slip coating, to the anodized aluminum reel seat with cushioned hoods.
Revolutionary Butt Design
Sick of hooking into a big fish and grabbing the rod only to have the butt section fail? Through rigorous testing we developed a custom carbon fiber rear grip and sculpted Delrin butt cap to solve the problem. The result is effortless pickups, year after year, without failure. As an added perk, the butt was designed to fit perfectly in your Scotty rod holders.
